I already own Collision Course and Paradox but haven't listened to them that much.
Well, play Collision Course a couple more times, and you'l be impressed, I assure you
Steve J is into'm now too, as you may have noticed (my guess is from reading my previous post here, but I'm not sure he'l admit it)
Iggy, what motivated you to buy CC and Paradox at the time ? They'r not well known in the West (more in Russia and Japan).
It's a strange thing about Royal Hunt: I actually also sampled a song or two of theirs occasionally over the years, lately on YouTube, each time concluding that "this is just another keyboard-driven band makin songs á la Journey." I probably wouldnt have gotten a cd by them, for an even longer while iac, if I hadnt fallen over a cheap copy of CC. But man, did that change everything .....
I really hope that they can raise themselves after the disappointing Show Me How To Live. I believe that they could get real big with a bit of help from their friends (fans, like me). Man, they have made some real killer songs (aint that so, Jonesey), that I consider should be accessible to a broad audience, beyond just proggies, also people who like groups like Muse, Coldplay, The Killers. RH are sooooo much more exciting.
